A nurse is giving discharge instructions to the parents of a healthy newborn. Which of the following instructions should the nurse provide regarding car safety and the trip home from the hospital?

1. The infant should be restrained in an infant car seat, properly secured in the back seat in a rear-facing position.
2. The infant should be restrained in an infant car seat, properly secured in the front passenger seat.
3. The infant should be restrained in an infant car seat facing forward or rearward in the back seat.
4. For the trip home from the hospital, the parent may sit in the back seat and hold the newborn.

Explanation

All infants under 1 year of age weighing less than 20 lbs. should be placed in a rear-facing infant car seat secured properly in the back seat. Infant car seats should never be placed in the front passenger seat. Infants should always be placed in an approved car seat during travel, even on that first ride home from the hospital.
